Strange Sound at my window.

Early this morning, while getting ready for work, I hear this strange sound at the dining room window. The pictures will tell the rest of the story.

Flour Explosion

John, my darling klutz, somehow tripped and fell or something and my flour container exploded. I could do nothing but laugh at the mess as he rubbed his shin and said bring me the vacuum.(He never uses this instrument!). Can you see his footprint on the carpet? Boy what a mess and this is after he is almost done cleaning!

The bird was blue

While home on lunch yesterday, I was surprised to see a blue bird eating the squirrel feed under the tree. The description I gave a co worker sounded like a blue jay. John caught it again just before we went to bed. I sure hope I catch it again!

I have been waiting for these Iris's to open up for days. This morning the pinkish one was and the other one almost. I am happy to see that I have some that are a different color. The pinkish one is called Invitation and the other one I believe is True Blue. Have a great day!

The Wait is Over.

I have been waiting for a few days for this new Iris to open. Two years ago we planted 16 different new iris and were disappointed that only one bloomed last year. This year more seem to be getting ready to show their stuff. The one in the photo was the second, the first being one that is plain white. I am not even sure John took a photo of it, I know that I did not. I just looked and there is a shot of it. AnyWHOOO! I was hoping this new Iris would NOT be solid purple, as I already have many like that. I will let the photo tell you the rest, and yes, I like this one!

Wondering WHY?

Tessa was wondering why Daddy had to work late so much this week? I wonder why I am still putting up with this cough and such. I know that inhalers give me the shakes and hopefully soon I will cease to need it. Alicia picked up the pictures that were taken of her girls three weeks ago. She brought them to work so that they could see, I on the other hand have to wait until I am healthy enough to be around. Tessa wishes we could go for a drive to night, the weather is not nice and she likes to be out in it. I want one simple little thing tonight, SLEEP! I paced until late, did some dishes and finally somehow feel asleep. How was everyone else's day? Have a great weekend!

This little guy has decided that he likes to live in my flower bed. GRRR! This year I barely have time to worry about it. Those flowers are going to have to take care of themselves. I guess I better get ready for work.
